Dear Professor Sharfstein
After receiving the assignment for the essay, I was interested in finding a topic I could learn more about. Immediately, I knew that I wanted to involve gratitude in my paper, but I was unsure about which topic to choose. After doing some research I came across the topic of how gratitude positively impacts one’s mental and physical health. I knew right away that is the topic I wanted to do. I have done many gratitude practices and have seen the benefits myself, but I wanted to dive deeper into the topic. When I have used gratitude, I have seen the benefits such as increased happiness, more energy, and better sleep
The Peril of Drones
It is only a matter of time before the USA is attacked using UAV's, also known as drones. The Government will spy, law enforcement and the hobbyist alike will invade privacy, radical and domestic terrorists will make weapons and use them with dangerous results as the world has already witnessed. Even though edubirdie review has a definite upside in that it does save lives and help with numerous other tasks, drones should not be sold to the students because essays are being weaponized to deliver deadly results and they are violating 4th amendment rights by recording without proper authorization.
Drones and the Public
Drones should not be sold to the public. One reason for concern is right next door; the hobbyist, flying a drone over someone's backyard while they are sunbathing or having a private party, invading one's privacy. In a review written by Alexandria Tomanelli, she writes, "In July 2015, a father in Kentucky shot a drone that was hovering over his yard while his teen daughter was sunbathing" (p. 879). Owners of drones have already shown that not all people can handle the responsibility of operating a drone without invading the privacy of others. Edubirdie reviews are here for the duration and must be strictly regulated. Furthermore, there are laws and regulations for crewless aircraft, and these crewless aircraft are being used to spy on citizens regardless of the legalities.
